I would overstock my fridge with this if possible. It has one of the best oaky flavors in beer that i have ever experienced. This is beer I bring South with zero indication of sharing. :Just so good.

Poured in the tap room in Decorah. Caramel colored with very little head. Not much on the nose either, though I did get a little sense of the wood - vanilla tones. In the mouth this shines though as it has a nice creamy mouth-feel and, while it is a bit heavy, it's balanced nicely by a citrus like component. Very impressed by the flavors this beer brings.

I haven't had many English India Pale Ale's I've really enjoyed, so I tried to be as unbaised to the style as possible when rating. The beer was incredibly murky, with a slight cappuccino flavor. I didn't pick up much oak.

Decent beer and incredibly glad to try it, but Toppling Goliath does a lot of stuff I prefer.
